I got a quote in this CNET News article on Microsoft licensing SCO code. I think this really muddies the waters for CIOs. Just when Linux (and open source in general) was starting to get some traction among CIOs, this makes them wonder if they're going to be liable for unknown licensing fees. Nothing like the unknown to scare CIOs off. As I said in the article, I don't think it would deter me, but I was an open source user before I was a CIO, not the other way around.
